You guys might enjoy the fact that I now run dwayo.com

Yep! Started!

Reminder: any system built using cryptographic hashes or encryption methods that doesn't have a way of migrating to new algorithms and key sizes is only temporarily secure. New weaknesses is algorithms are found from time to time, and you must have a way to migrate to newer, stronger algorithms.

So, Russian apparently has the "partitive" case. It's used almost exclusively for measures of drinks. Finnish is another language with the partitive. Both countries are known for rampant alcohol abuse. Coincidence?

I kid of course, superficial research shows that Finnish uses the partitive in a different way, but it would be funny if anyone speaking the language could confirm.

I started watching The Witcher on Netflix because a friend who is generally right about what I should watch has told me to.

Really ought to use the underappreciated Reader View on Firefox. F9 away, on every page!

I am evaluating if I should embrace HTML emails in life.

Universal bug report: "Why did this break? It was working just a moment ago! I didn't change anything!"

Me: *starts investigating*

Universal bug report response: "You did, in fact, change something. But we shouldn't be breaking anyway. I'll work on a fix."

This is how software gets engineered and developed.

Just released Site.js version 12.10.4

sitejs.org

This is mainly a technical debt release with a major refactoring to use @small-tech/https instead of @ind.ie/acme-tls and @ind.ie/nodecert. It also consolidates settings into a single directory under ~/.small-tech/site.js and improves the uninstaller. Also has a couple of improvements on (*shudder*) Windows.

If you think a single person is just too small to make a difference, you should read up on Jadav Payeng, the "Forest Man of India".

When he was 16 he started planting trees on a deforested sandbar. He made it a habit of planting at least one tree every single day - over the course of the last four decades.

His forest now encompasses an area of about 1,360 acres / 550 hectares and is home to not only over one hundred elephants, but also monkeys, tigers and deer.

Be the change you desire!
